Tillandsia pruinnosa - Air Plant
Tillandsia pruinnosa is characterized by velvet-like, twisty leaves and vivid pink blooms. Comparable to the caput-medusae type, this air plant displays a bulbous base and turning foliage, although its leaves are a softer texture and its trichomes are more visible. It favours an environment with ample airflow and partial light, as the trichomes protect the plant from the sun's rays. As blooming nears, the pruinosa's bulb will become a glowing pink and display ethereal purple flowers.
Air Plants are technically epiphytes, growing in nature on another tree, host, or object. However, they don’t steal nutrients from their host. Air plants use tiny vessels located throughout their leaves called trichomes to capture nutrients and moisture from the air.
Air Plant Care
Keep your air plants happy in bright indirect light. Mist them thoroughly twice a week. Alternatively, dunk the plant face down in a sink or bowl of water and let it soak for 20 minutes, once a week. Shake excess water from the plant, to prevent any rot.
To ensure they receive the nutrients they need, add air plant fertiliser when you mist or soak them. We recommend using EasyGro Foliar Feed for Air Plants / 1 heaped scoop per litre of water.
